's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between m
in the republican party, known. i'm not suggesting that john mccain was a racist but john mccain had no association of black people whatsoever. the press like mitt romney this year. i know they always try out some black people that facility i know. and his age career he had with his ascent toward all the things in terms of his history and john mccain's family comes from mississippi by john mccain had no association with black people whatsoever. so when he ran for the presidency in 2008, black people were not even on a radar. at the present obama got elected, could there isn't a not necessarily true belief by republicans that the african- american vote was no longer -- was basically off-limits. i believe the rise of publicly- expressed racist sentiments and the attitudes that go with them came from the fact that a lot of republicans decided black people are off limits. so we don't have to appeal to black people. karl rove into a dozen forethought," i know black people and i know there are lettuce. i know they don't like the marriage. let's go to ohio and go to churches and african-american leaders a
of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turnout, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote, it was just huge. you look at the states, look at florida, colorado, you look at nevada, you could even argue iowa, but state after state, the latino vote, if you take it out, the democrats would have lost, even in florida, it was 61-39 including the cubans. cuban-americans are not no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but the younger generations of cuban-americans vote like puerto rican or dominican voters, not the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans, that was the biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. i remember covering the 2000 race. gore and bush. i think bush won the asian-american vote before september 11th, asian-american was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday, it was 3-to-1 democratic. urban-rural, it's -- mirror images. it's roughly 60-40, and demographically, which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you wouldn't want to bet on rural americ
to talk about how they can work together. the republicans say look he did the same thing with john mccain as president elect in 2008. both parties went to their separate corners in the end and didn't get a lot done together. republic strategists are saying if the president is serious about this second term maybe they can get business done. take a listen. >> i was interested in his remarks last night saying the best is yet to come. we would have liked to have seen some of that in the first four years. maybe is he serious this time. >> in an effort to try to show he is following up, we're told by white house aides that late in the evening last night into the early hours of this morning the president started dialing up john boehner, the house speaker on the republic side. harry reid the democrat. leaders in both parties to try to say look, let's get this conversation started, shep. >> shepard: ed, the campaign seemed very confident in this outcome is it saying anything about what might have surprised the campaign. >> what they are saying is they couldn't believe the margin of victory in colo
. >> reporter: john mccain got 31% in 2008, and for mitt romney this year, just 27%, in the wake of tuesday, republicans' soul-searching will center around places like orlando. bush won it in 2004, but a growing puerto rico population have now helped to fuel obama's win there, a group not happy with republicans. >> you go out and disrespect the hispanic community like that, you think that we don't notice that? >> reporter: in florida alone, the hispanic population has grown, but among them, the republicans have been perceived as tone deaf on topics like immigration reform. >> well, the answer is self- self-deportation. >> it is the words that are used. self-deportation, was i think, really, really hurtful. >> reporter: republicans must now figure out how to balance their core ideals and values against this shifting demographic landscape. >> republicans, at least at the national level, want to win elections. and along this path they can't win national elections. there will be a debate, then, on how you react to that. but i think the assumption will be broadly shared in the party. >> the post
that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand border issues. but i do think this border issue. promises, promises, promises. folks will be upset including white working class voters. martha: you think back to the moments along the way in these elections and when the turning points were. my mind goes back to marco rubio who was about to put forth some legislation that was very similar to what -- a policy that would literally came out of the lips of president obama days later. right before president obama put out his feeling that people who came under the age of 16 and those ramifications that he put out there, right before he did that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had
, senator john mccain weighs in on it all. >>> and guy's new restaurant gets one of the harshest reviews ever written. a drink that tastes like radiator fuel, guy fights back in a live interview today, thursday, november 15th, 2012. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a thursday morning, i'm savannah gurthrie. >> and i'm matt lauer. we'll talk about major breaking news in a minute. but the review you talked about about guy fieri's restaurant, i have never read a review like this. and a lot of people are wondering, is this fair? the kind of review that should be written? or did this go across some kind of a line? >> yeah, use whatever word you want to use, roasted, fileted, skewered. when the review starts out guy fieri, have you eaten at your new restaurant in time square? we look forward to a response. >> looking forward to what he has to say. >>> also a developing story in israel overnight. three people killed in a rocket attack after the israelis took out the top military commander of hamas in this strike on wednesday. we'll have a live report from tel aviv coming up straight
to stay. john mccain was criticized when he ran for president for his more open perspective on how to approach this problem. he didn't get anywhere with that. he lost his election as well. what are the lessons here. >> the first lesson is the president is not the only one who can evolve on an issue. martha: the president said he had evolved on the issue of gay marriage. >> i think it is a significant fire. a signal that maybe we should be open. this will come up in the next congress regardless. certainly at least tone has to be moderated if not policy. and i think that is an important part of reaching out to a new electorate that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand bord
of the republican party. in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote. four years later john mccain got 31%. now 27% for mitt romney. to be steadily losing votes in an expanding demographic is a recipe for failure. florida senator marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants and a republican suggests the problem is both substantive. >> it's hard to make an argument to people that think that you want to deport their grandmother. >> decisive in 2012. 53% of the votes this year were cast by women who favored president obama by ten points. >> my wife is a democrat, and she was so close to voting for mitt romney, but then, you know, murdock and akin opened their mouths, and we sent them running back to the democratic party because they think we're nut where i. >> actually, married women tended favor mitt romney, but single women, a growing part of the population, went 3-1 for the president. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> republicans have two years until the midterm to try to shed a little of the old off the grand old party and reach out to a quickly cha
and was endorsed in the race by republicans like john mccain. so that would be an easy confirmation process. john kerry you would have to replace him and maybe scott brown runs for his seat but i think john kerry or berman would be solid picks. >>shepard: on the federal reserve we hear about lawrence summers. >>guest: former clinton secretary was interested in it before better -- bernanke was tapped. and the vice chair of the central bank now, she would be the first woman to head the bank so she is probably the favorite in this game we all have to play. >>shepard: with the focus on women in the elections that would make sense on a bunch of different fronts. and the defense department with panetta saying that's it. >>guest: well, he will stay for a little bit and deal with this sequestration problem, until it is solved and you have to look at panetta's deputy and you have to look at the highest ranking member at the defense department who would be the first female defense secretary. >>shepard: at treasury, geithner has been a controversial figure. what is the thinking on that? >>guest: you have ja
to studentcam.org. >> on capitol hill today, republican senators john mccain, lindsay graham and kelly ayon called for creating a temporary select committee to investigate the attack in libia. they also said they would move to block the nomination of ms. rice as secretary of state. here's part of what they had to say. >> senator, do you think there was a national security threat in -- and thousands of -- in thousands of pages of information ended up on a florida socialite in secret emails involving the head of the c.i.a. and a top general in afghanistan and the fact that the federal bureau of investigation agent who was complaining to you stepped out of the chain of command and went to a house republican leader rather than anyone else, do you think that's a potentially greater national security threat like you're talking about? >> i say that's one of the dumbest questions i've ever heard. there's four dead americans. there's four dead americans. not a socialite, not a socialite, i'm answering your question. do you want me to answer your question or do you want to interrupt? which do you wan
chair. another thing the campaign was expecting. they thought they would get more turnout than john mccain did in 2008. they thought republicans would turn out to vote in larger numbers. that didn't happen. they got 2 million fewer votes than john mccain. everything they looked at didn't turn out right. even in their strategy. romney got momentum after that first debate people got excited on the right. that was a huge opportunity for him. but he really didn't capitalize on that with any kind of message. then he was just playing it too safe. critics say and we think about sports. almost like he was playing defense in football except he never had the lead. playing defense when he was behind. >> we go back to john dickerson. john, of all the mistakes that are now being analyzed what was the biggest mistake and also isn't it always in the end the candidate not the strategy? >> well, you know, we're in the recriminations and finger pointing stage so the list of mistakes and the claims are pretty long here. i think you're fundamentally right. this is a candidate who seemed out of place with both
thing the campaign was expecting. they thought they would get more turnout than john mccain did in 2008. they thought republicans would turn out to vote in larger numbers. that didn't happen. they actually thought it would get 2 million fewer votes than john mccain did. even in their strategies. romney got momentum, remember aof that first dough bait. people got really excited on the right. that was a huge opportunity for him but he didn't really kptize on that with any kind of message. he was playing it too safe. critics say when you think about sports it was almost like he was playing prevent/defense in football except he never had the lead, just playing prevent defense when he was behind. gayle and charlie? >> jan, thanks. to john dickerson. of all the mistakes now being analyzed, what was the biggest mistake? isn't it always in the end the candidate, not the strategy? >> well, you know, we're in the recripple recriminations and finger pointing stage. you're fundamentally right. this candidate seemed out of place with both himself and his party. and that see
percentage points over john mccain. among men in 2008, president obama and senator mccain split it evenly. in that respect, governor romney did fair better, right, brad? >> he did fair better, but we didn't do as good as we should have done. and whether it's the gender gap or whether it's the minority gap, we should be doing better with african-americans, hispanics, asians, the youth. we should be doing better. so if anything is to be learned by this outcome of 2012 on the national level, it's the republican party has to do a better job of not just asking for people's vote when we need it. what we need to do is encourage people not only to join our party, but also be leaders of our party and also candidates of our party. we can certainly do that because our message and our platform is appealing to women. we've got to do a better job of recruitment. >> heather: here is the thing, let's talk more about the women's vote specifically. jehmu, lumping more than 50% of the population into one group and talking about it as a single unit definitely oversimplifies things a lot to say the least. the
in the 2008 election. and you see the john mccain supporters concentrated inland and the obama supporters on the coast. in 2010 we had a new census and we had a citizens redistricting commission that put together a new group of districts and the 2012 congress enjoyed those new districts and was able to pick up more seats along the coast because the districts follow more closely the partisan break down. so in 2012, democrats were able to pick up three seats and they actually pick up a 4th. that little yellow spot is a perfect example of this. that's district 7 where republican dan lungren has served since 2005. and it's a very close seat, brought to you by redistricting. >> the democrats are probably applauding now the election has come and gone. before it they were like don't do that. >> back in 2008, and again in 2010, that's when the ballot measures were up before voters so that we could create this independent commission instead of letting the legislature create their own lines. when that happened, the democrats were strongly against it. nancy pi rosie was against it -- pilosi was agai
. then there is this big question, catherine, which john mccain is pushing for, a special investigation, a panel, a select committee to be put in place. is there any chance of that? >> reporter: well there seems to be some immediate pushback. to lay it out for folks. we have three senior senate republicans who believe the fallout from benghazi is so significant it is on par with some of the major scandals of american history. >> watergate investigation benefited from a joint select committee. iran-contra benefited from a select committee. i think finding the truth about benghazi is only possible if you combine the resources of these three committees and do it in a professional manner. >> reporter: shortly after that announcement the senate majority leader harry reid said he would not support the proposal and there has also been hesitation from other republicans and moderates in the senate saying that the proposal is premature. >> i think we ought to give the established committees of the congress an opportunity to see where we can get in answering some of the questions that everybody has. >> i do not see
lights are blinking and we are closing down shop. we're going see you tomorro night. senator john mccain and pat buchanan will be here. make sure you go to gretawire.com. there is an open thread there. good night from washington, d.c.. nothing has changed. nothing has changed. >> eric: this is the fox news alert. breaking right now, new details of the ongoing and growing controversy surrounding general petraeus and now general allen. let's get the very latest from the national security correspondent. jennifer griffin who joins us from the pentagon. there are so many things coming out, breaking as we speak. give us two or three most important things you have seen and you have heard today. >> the most important thing is how the investigation is expanding. we went to bed, thinking the f.b.i. investigation ended and then we hear the f.b.i. was going back to broadwell's house, paula broadwell's house, petraeus' mistress in north carolina. we don't know what that is all about. then we hear shortly after that, that general john allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, who was here i
iss ers who lean democratic, have grown. in 2004, president bush got 40% of the latino vote. john mccain, 31% in 2008, and for mitt romney this year, just 27%. in the wake of tuesday, republicans soul-searching will look at places like florida's osceola county, bush won it. but a growing number of constituency now helped obama there. >> you go out and disrespect the hispanic community like that, you think we don't notice that? >> reporter: in florida alone, the hispanic population has grown since 2008. but among them, republicans are perceived as tone deaf on critical topics, immigration reform. >> well, the answer is people decide they can do better by going home because they can't find work here. >> reporter: the words matter. >> even though barack obama has deported more undocumented people in the history of the united states, it is the words that are used. self-deportation, i think, was really, really hurtful. >> reporter: republicans must think about how to balance their core ideas against this shifting demographic landscape. >> republicans, at least at the national level want to wi
the rich. after senator john mccain lost the 2008 presidential race much of the republican spotlight landed on his vice presidential pick sarah palin. now her observers are wondering if the same thing will happen to mitt romney's running mate paul ryan. chip reid is in janesville wisconsin, with that. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. paul ryan is spending some down time with his family in his hometown of janesville wisconsin, before heading back to washington, and yes, he will be heading back to washington because while he lost the vice presidential bid, he was overwhelmingly re-elected by the people of this district to his seat in congress. and now, just two days after election day, talk in political circles is already turning to paul ryan's political future. for mitt romney losing the presidential campaign likely means the end of the political road, but for paul ryan defeat could lead to a new beginning. >> i don't know if he covered himself with glory, but i think he kind of met a certain test. >> reporter: a test that has already led
the pentagon has come under fire from senator john mccain and other republican senators who say military assets should have been on alert given it was september 11th they should have been within striking distance. >> it almost sounds like this opens up as many questions as it answers. >> reporter: that seems to be the way the story has developed, rebecca, throughout. we do have three closed door hearings on capitol hill this week. they will be represented from the pentagon cia and state department and investigators are going ask were there military openings considered and decided against it. could it have made a difference. the state department hasn't disclosed whether ambassador stevens requested enhanced security and the cia did they provide the appropriate security response. last week the agency acknowledged they sent in six agents to fight off dozens of attackers and as you said petraeus was scheduled to testify on thursday because he resigned acting direct or morell will answer these tough questions. >> thanks margaret. >>> now to the economic crisis that could
is another one. the new senator from arizona worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. from nebraska.sc caller: thank you for taking my call. latinos when for obama primarily for the immigration issue. you do not think that is narrow minded or the might be other issues that latinos are focusing in. if you would want to discuss those. guest: that is an excellent question. polling shows that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do not think hispanics always want to be associated with immigration. it is difficult to separate the immigration conversation from them because it is so integral to their lives. 60% of hispanic voters know somebody personally t
was underperforming john mccain among hispanics, he actually won more of the african-american vote than john mccain did. now, he won 6% instead of 4%, but he actually got up to like 8% or 9% among 18 to 29-year-old african-americans which is the group that's hardest hit by unemployment. again, these are tiny numbers. >> mitt romney underperformed a light post with hispanics. don't get started on that. >> a jack kent republican would be very welcome right now to create some sense of competition. we have 10% or 11% of the country right now in free fall and neither party taking it seriously. that's bad. >> it's not as if the republicans didn't work for the african-american and latino vote, they actively rejected it. that was the sense i got. they used it as a way to run up the score with white voters and really created a corrosive toxic discourse that i think hurt everybody. >> what's your unsolicited advice today, ana? >> well, my unsolicited advice is for -- >> hold it up. >> how do you say that in spanish? an extra exclamation point. >> say yeb or bushito. he will respond to either in miami. in ful
in 2008 because he thought it was be spiking the ball and disrespectful for john mccain. >> yes. >> stephanie: we were saying what a dichotomy. the president crying actual tears for these kids that worked their hearts off for them. and mitt romney all he thinks of is to cut off their credit cards. >> i enjoy fire peopling. >> you hadn't heard that john about the credit cards? >> no. but it is really really shocking. and again, it's like they didn't know, because fox news loves to brag how they are the top-rated news channel but if that means that having the most ratings gives you the most credibility, that spongebob has more credibility than fox news. more americans watch spongebob than fox news. >> stephanie: yeah, and we were saying it is all about content in this new age, even as we know what they have done on radio, we were on a teeny tiny amount of stations compared to the right-wingers, but people are listening on line on stitcher on satellite they are podcasting. that's the thing you can't stop information in this day and age. for instance, they talked
, and jim web served with honor in vietnam as well as senator john mccain, senator lindsey abraham who continued to serve as a colonel in the air force reserve, and my colleague senator mark kick who is a commander in the navy reserve. the elections this month saw at least nine new veterans of iraq and afghanistan electioned to congress bringing the total of new ernst haves in the next congress to at least 16, some are still counting the ballots in some states. the people of illinois are produced that three of those 16 veterans are from our state. congressman adam kin singer, an air force veteran of iraq and afghanistan, and two exceptional leaders who will join the next congress, bill enier, a new congressman from downillinois, former adjutant general. and my friend, my shero tammy duckworth, daughter of a vietnam vet and one of the first women to ever fly a combat mission in iraq. she was combat ago blackhawk helicopter when r.p.g.'s hit her helicopter. she's worked in both state and federal government on behalf of veterans. what a proud day it will be for america when tammy stands t
petraeus, questions about libya, question about benghazi and his national security team. you heard john mccain and lindsey graham today come out vehemently against the idea of susan rice becoming secretary of state. there's a whole bunch of questions that this white house would prefer not to be dealing with today. they'd prefer to be talking about the fiscal cliff. i have a feeling they'll be disappointed. >> of course, so far, the story that started with david petraeus is so complex we actually chose to diagram it out last night. there are no new components today but washington will be all riled up with investigations and hearings for the foreseeable future. >> that's right. and there is now talk david petraeus will testify in the next couple of days, either tomorrow or friday, that should loosen, let out some steam. >> chuck todd has to sit down. the president is entering the room. >> good afternoon, everybody. please have a seat. i hear you have some questions for me. but let me just make a few remarks at the top and then i'll open it up. first of all i want to reiterate what i said on frid
the president ran against john mccain. what lesson can we take about 2012 from women voters? how do republicans do a better job to win the female vote? we have a great panel. christina schaeffer. wendy biondi was undecided voter. leaning towards governor romney last time we talked. we got to know her when she attended the second presidential debate. nice to have you with us. colleen come bell was a speechwriter for president george w. bush. she is the author of my sisters same. great to have you all. we haven't talked in a couple weeks. you were undecided when we last talked. how did you end up voting? >> i voted for romney. jenna: what was the main reason behind that decision? >> i think it came down to three things, really. one as i said before, it had to do with his blueprint for the economy. i really don't think obama has any sort of plan for the economy. he had his four years to sort of give us an idea what he is going to do and in my opinion he has failed. two, i am really faith-based person. i'll catholic and, 90% of americans are, you know, rooted in some sort of religion. and i don't t
the demographic changes we're talking about than texas. mitt romney won it by a wider margin than john mccain did. so there's some conservatives that are saying that. others are saying we have to get religion. here's shawn han knit at this. >> he has evolved. >> announcing how he feels about immigration reform. take a look. >> we've got to get rid of the immigration issue altogether. it's simple to me to fix it. i think you control the border first. you create a pathway for these people that are here. you don't say you've got to go home and that is a position that i've evolved on because, you know what, it just -- it's got to be resolved. the majority of people here, if there's some people that have criminal records, you can send them home. if people are here, law abiding, participating beings four years, their kids are born here, it's first secure the boarder, pathway to citizenship, done, whatever little penalties you want to put in there if you want, but then it's done. >> avik, i want to hear your thoughts on this evolution after we take the break. the way it cleans. everything about the oral
three weeks ago mitt romney would get viewer votes than john mccain and looks like it will be 2 million fewer, i would have been dumbfounded. >> real quickly, facing the fiscal cliff in the coming months. the outcome of this election will affect the debate over that and the resolution of that how? >> well, the president faces the biggest choice since january of 2009. does he sit down in a room and honestly openly negotiate with speaker boehner, mitch mcconnell, or does he come in, give a set of demands and go hold a press conference? they can, i believe, hammer out -- >> same can the said on the other side, by the way. >> but if the president is willing to do it, the republicans have no choice. i mean, you can't turn down a president who just won re-election if he's sincere and willing to negotiate. >> going to take some bold initiatives which is my segue into your book, okay, because you've written this book about george washington and his bold moves to break the stalemate of the revolutionary war. so much has been written about george washington. what do you want readers to take away
really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, and it came campaign was-of the mccain cabin was up and down. -- campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the sup
